Ephesians 3

3:1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of the Messiah for you Gentiles,

3:2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the favour of which is given me to you-ward:

3:3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,

3:4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of the Messiah)

3:5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his set-apart apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

3:6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in the Messiah by the gospel:

3:7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the favour of given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this favour given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of the Messiah;

3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in , who created all things:

3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Master the Messiah,

3:15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

3:17 That the Messiah may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

3:18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

3:19 And to know the love of the Messiah, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of .

3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

3:21 Unto him be glory in the assembly by the Messiah throughout all ages, world without end, amein.
